Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro
Initially I wanted to go with one of the first cases that caught my attention which was the white case from Corsair (CC600TWM-WHT). I decided on the Phanteks Enthoo Pro mostly because the build was going to go over my budget drastically of the 1500 I set initially. I saw a video posted by Hardware Canucks on youtube of their Phanteks Enthoo Pro review and it helped me purchase the case.
- The price point of 99.99 USD really helped me make my decision. But what really sealed the deal were all the added features that came with the case.
- The case has holes for cable management all over the place which makes hiding cables a breeze (Something I was extremely interested in)
- A huge drive bay that will allow me to fill it with more drives then I have
- Water cooling ready – has the ports for water cooling mounting which would have made it a breeze if I went that route (initially I was thinking of doing it)
- Front dust filtration , top dust filtration , lower dust filtration – This will make cleaning the computer a breeze if I do upkeeps. My previous case did not have any and dust settled in the case
- Case is a model friendly case. The case is actually held by screws and not rivets so taking the case apart will be a extremely easy.
Post install: I couldn’t be happier with the case. What you get for the price is makes this case second to none. I did however notice that the paint on the case is rather thin. The case is susceptible to being scratched really easily. I also had a panel fall from not that high of an altitude and it easily got bent.
